    A Nationally Acclaimed
    AAA Four Diamond New Hampshire Restaurant

    While the roots of the Bedford Village Inn are in historic New England, the crown jewel of the property is the contemporary regional cuisine and warm hospitality – and the BVI Restaurant has earned myriad accolades distinguishing it as a nationally acclaimed New Hampshire restaurant. Three dining venues, the Dining Room, the Tavern, and Corks offer you a choice for whatever your mood.

    Critical portions of the cuisine we serve at the Bedford Village Inn Restaurant come from numerous high-end local regional producers and farmers throughout the Bedford, New Hampshire area.  Local produce means natural freshness.  So the eggs that make your souffle’ so fluffy are plucked warm from a henhouse in Londonderry, as does the maple syrup drizzling down the best buttermilk pancakes around.  And that nice thick slab of apple-wood bacon comes from “the north country” in Claremont.  The chickens we use come from our neighbors to the west in Vermont. Dairy and seasonal cheeses come from some of the most uniquely named pet goats and blue-ribbon sheep we’ve had the pleasure of meeting.

    Providing some of the best produce for a good part of the year are our neighbors at a cooperative organic farm in Litchfield.  Seafood from the shores of New England in the North Atlantic, pork from Niman Ranch, and choice grain fed angus beef from the Midwest are all the best money can buy.


    The BVI Restaurant boasts a full pastry and bakeshop where our Pastry Chef oversees production of all baked products served anywhere on the property – including your morning bread, hamburger rolls, and a variety of breads served at lunch and dinner – and, of course, desserts.

    When all are assembled, our amazed guests are faced with a choice of homemade cream-stuffed, steaming, drizzled, icy, fragrant, fruit-stuffed, chocolate-dipped, nut crowned and sugar-swirled delights. Tough decisions all the way around – but just wait until you see what’s on the menu during our Winter Holiday festivities!

    One of the prides and joys of the Bedford Village Inn Restaurant  is our  Wine Cellar, home to over 8,000 distinguished bottles from which you may select the perfect vintage to complement your meal.

    Or experience the taste of an elusive vintage in our Cork’s Wine Bar or Tavern. Certified Sommelier, Jon Carnevale, makes sure there are always new and exciting wines to enjoy with every seasonal menu and he  is happy to guide you on a new wine adventure to suit your palate and purse.

    Our nationally acclaimed New Hampshire restaurant features many exciting culinary events throughout the year including our Chef’s Invitational Series, notable wine dinners, and Holiday events.

    Executive Chef, Benjamin Knack studied at New York Institute of Technology and started his career in Phoenix, Arizona at the renowned Christopher’s; a four star restaurant rated as the top 20 in America. Most recently, Benjamin presided over the kitchen at The Lanam Club in Andover, MA, and has held similar positions at Sel de la Terre, L’Espalier and Beacon Hill Bistro all in Boston. “Food is more than something to eat. It brings family and friends together. It creates experiences that are memorable for a lifetime,” says Knack, “I’m a very technical chef; I don’t do things that are floating on your plate.” These attributes landed Benjamin on the TV episode of Hell’s Kitchen season 7. Of Knacks decision to compete; “I worked in physical kitchens with a bunch of French and Italian chefs who would scream, yell and throw things, so when I heard about Hell’s Kitchen I said, ‘I can handle that!’”

    “I am pleased to join the prestigious Bedford Village Inn and look forward to imparting my culinary philosophy and skills I acquired at similar properties throughout the country to create a memorable dining experience for all our guests at the BVI. I am also anxious to create a unique children’s cooking series at the Inn involving recipes I will be using in my book series.”
